About Me
A student I have always been, and I might forever be one. Currently in college studying biochemistry, I find myself concentrating proteins more often than writing on paper (unless I'm doing some quick calculations). But that does not mean I am stuck in science. Writing has--and always will be--a mode of escape for me, a way to forget about the ups and downs of reality and create a new one. I am pursuing an MD-PhD degree following my graduation, but for now, I'll just write a little. . . .
Type of Writer
I am a writer that trumps word choice over plot. Maybe it's because I'm synaesthesic. All it takes is one beautiful sentence.
Writing Style
Again. Words. While it must be awful for someone else to read, I cannot find greater joy than being lost in a good sentence.
I have 4 loves: Science, the intricate craftings of the living world that baffles even the most learned scholar. Music, a dimension of the air that steals your heart in its tension. Creation, the majesty of a creative God. And words. Beautiful words.
